MINI Brand Sales In October, MINI USA reported sales of 5,700 automobiles, a decrease of 3.2 percent from the 5,888 sold in the same month a year ago. Year-to-date, MINI sales in the U.S. are up 1.7 percent on volume of 55,335 compared to 54,419 in the first ten months of 2012. MINI Pre-Owned Vehicles In October, MINI used automobiles (including MINI NEXT certified pre-owned and preowned) continued its year of record breaking, smashing last yearâ€™s October sales with an increase of 30.4 percent to 1,962 vehicles from 1,505 sold in October, 2012. January through October, MINI used vehicle sales are up 19.1 percent on volume of 18,143 compared to 15,233 in the same period of 2012. My Take Looking at the numbers and knowing that the Hardtop is going away for the new F56 it looks to me as if MINI is running short of Hardtops on the ground for sale causing the 31% decrease in Hardtop sales over October 2012. What do you think?
